Crispy, tropical fruits, cacao nibs, and lemon launch this cup. Next comes flavor notes of nut butter, chocolate graham cookie, and butterscotch. Mellow acidity and a creamy, caramelized mouthfeel rounds out this big-bodied, sensory-packed coffee.

Meet Ramon de Jesus

On the mighty shoulders of the Montana El Pital, part of the Reserva de Vida Silvestre El Pital, rests Finca Los Planes. This 32-hectares belongs to Ramon de Jesus, a 36-year-old coffee producer that found his dream not in America where he lived for 5 years, but on the farm he inherited when he was 8. Now with a 4-year-old son named after him and his wife, Sobeida, Ramon is living his dream of growing truly excellent coffee on his own land.

Darwin Pavon of Theodore’s Coffee met Ramon in a fertilizer training Darwin was sharing in Ocotepeque, Honduras in 2009, and was struck by Ramon’s enthusiasm and passion for coffee. Upon visiting Finca Los Planes, Darwin experienced first-hand the sustainable ecosystem Ramon has developed which includes everything from fresh-laid eggs for breakfast to his freshly picked specialty-grade coffee.

Chalatenango, Honduras

The Chalatenango sub-region lies within the Alotepec-Metapán coffee-growing region in northeast and north-central El Salvador, a series of often hard-to-access volcanic mountain ranges. One of the highest growing regions in the country, most coffees are SHB--Strictly Hard Bean, a designation given to beans grown above 1400 MASL.

This hilly country contains few large estates, so it lies with smallholder farmers to coax the best from the volcanic soil, and coffee trees do love this mineral-rich medium. One variety that is growing in popularity in this region is the large-beaned Pacamara, a crossing of the Pacas and the Maragogipe varietals resulting in a hybrid that is better than both parents. Intense in flavors and aromas with elegant acidity, it is hardy, disease resistant, and productive.

Theodore's Coffee

Darwin Pavon founded Theodore's Coffee in 2014, after years working in Honduras collecting soil samples from farmers' fields in a push to create fertilizers for stronger growth and yield. Each Honduran coffee imported for Theodore's is sourced from a friend of Darwin's in the ultimate Direct Trade relationship. Pavon says,

"At Theodore's our passion is to bring to you superior quality coffee, serve you with excellence and create loyalty from you to our products and services in the coffee industry."

Every coffee you buy from Theodore's helps support The Micah Project, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where young men and boys who have grown up on the streets or in extreme poverty are trained in leadership and healthy life skills. Pavon has a strong passion to support The Micah Project, as he was an original Micah's resident who 'made good'.
